A conservative North Georgia talk show host who, like most conservatives, rails against election fraud, has allegedly voted illegally … nine times. He’s also a candidate for the state House. How did he allegedly break the law and commit Republican-only election fraud?
Well, the Georgia attorney general’s office says Brian K. Pritchard voted while “serving a felony sentence in a $33,000 forgery and theft case.” Dawson County News reports Pritchard says the accusations will not dissuade him from running. In fact, he’s working the classic GOP persecution complex angle, saying, “I will not be intimidated. I will not be bullied.”
Pritchard runs fetchyournews.com and qualified for the special election on Monday as the story of the state’s investigation into him became clearer. According to the report, back in 1996, Pritchard was living in Pennsylvania and pleaded guilty to three felonies, which included two counts of forgery and one count of theft by failure to make a required disposition of funds. He received probation and over $33,000 in restitution payments.
In 2008, Pritchard registered to vote in Georgia and subsequently voted in nine elections from 2008 to 2011—when his probation period ended. According to the accusation, those three years consisted of Pritchard voting illegally. The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports that this is the same guy who has been saying the 2020 election was “stolen” from Donald Trump, while also calling Gov. Brian Kemp—himself one of the most blatant, bigoted vote suppressors of the modern era—being complicit in it.
Will Pritchard be thrown into jail the way 43-year-old Crystal Mason was for voting once after being released from prison on similar charges to Pritchard? They both have the same excuse: they didn’t know and no one in a position of authority stopped them from voting. Mason was given a five-year sentence for that. She is also Black and Prichard is white. Dawson County News has the alleged illegal elections Pritchard voted in:
Voters just have to stay motivated and aware in order to reject such criminals. That gives Dems a better chance so that's great. Since there are insufficient laws to cover expected actions, which should have caused enactment of such laws, then we have to rely on the public vote. Good news is that I hear they are a wise block.
